Paideia School


Adichie, Chimamanda Ngozi, 1977-, author.

New York : Anchor Books, a division of Random House LLC, 2014.

588 pages ; 21 cm

The bestselling novel from the award-winning author of We Should All Be Feminists and Dear Ijeawele . The story of two Nigerians making their way in the U.S. and the UK, raising universal questions of race and belonging, the overseas experience for the African diaspora, and the search for identity and a home.

Ifemelu and Obinze are young and in love when they depart military-ruled Nigeria for the West. Beautiful, self-assured Ifemelu heads for America, where despite her academic success, she is forced to grapple with what it means to be black for the first time. Quiet, thoughtful Obinze had hoped to join her, but with post-9/11 America closed to him, he instead plunges into a dangerous, undocumented life in London. Fifteen years later, they reunite in a newly democratic Nigeria, and reignite their passion--for each other and for their homeland.
